Five months after the legalization of gay marriage and adoption by same-sex  couples in France, one couple has reason to celebrate.

A couple being identified in local media reports as Caroline and Pascale A. were married in June, and on Thursday received approval for one wife’s two biological children, Laure and Lise, to be adopted by the other wife, Le Monde reports. Both children are reportedly the result of artificial insemination by an unknown donor or donors.

The announcement was celebrated by the Association of Gay and Lesbian Parents and Future Parents, which said that from now on, children may hear in school hallways, “Two moms or two dads, it’s possible!”
